This anthology of essays on the work of David Kaplan, a leading contemporary philosopher of language, sprang from a conference, Themes from Kaplan, organized by the Center for the Study of Language and Information at Stanford University. The book contains sixteen papers by such distinguished contributors as Robert M. Adams, Roderick Chisholm, Nathan Salmon, and Scott Soames, and includes Kaplans hitherto uncollected paper, Demonstratives, which has for twenty years been one of the most influential pieces in the philosophy of language. These essays examine a broad range of themes related to Kaplans work; some address his work directly, while others are independent discussions of issues provoked by Kaplans thought.
